What To Do When You’re In Limbo

As you may have been able to tell, we haven’t posted anything in a while – 2 months to be exact – and for this, we apologize. It’s difficult to think of content to write about or post about when you have little to nothing exciting going on, or when you’re in limbo. Here are some things I personally like to do when I’m in limbo-mode to get my gears turning again.

Find A Creative Outlet
Find one, two or many activities that you enjoy where you can express yourself, be creative and start thinking outside the box. If you have a menial job or very repetitive routine than having a creative hobby to jump into can be really helpful. Personally, I love to write, take photos, and create houses in the Sims!

Plan, Plan, Plan!
We all need something to look forward to. Whether it’s going to see a new movie at the theatre on the weekend or planning a 2 week trip to China it’s always motivating to plan and get excited about what is to come. Plan something small for the weekend coming up, plan a small weekend trip or start saving for your next big adventure!

Put Out Content
See, this is where I messed up. I may have not had anything too exciting to share for the last little while (We are going to New York City in December though – woo!) but it’s always important to keep contact and share your experiences – no matter how small. This is how we, as humans, build relationships and long-lasting impressions on each other.

Join Groups
Seriously! Facebook has tones of these you can request to join so you can interact with people who have similar interests, dreams, and goals as you. Often people will share pointers and tips on their travels, recipes, dating advice – whatever it is you’re into! You can make some great lasting relationships here which will carry into other areas of your life. A great place to get some feedback and ask questions to real people that you just can’t get the answers to on Google!

Keep Your Eye On The Goal
Always remember why you started what you started. Keep it going strong to the end. Nothing comes easy and perseverance does pay off! Create a goal/dream board, get branded merchandise or just put a small sticky note on your desk as a daily reminder from you to you to keep on going.

Feel free to share any tips or advice you may have for when you get stuck in a rut. How do you stay motivated and change things up? Drop us a comment – we would love to hear from you!

    And also explore local! 🙂 I’ve found loads of things to do around where I live and it’s made me appreciate it a lot more, too! Good idea for the groups too – I’m on quite a few travel ones and although it brings on lots of travel envy, it’s fun to be more involved because I’m not so busy! And definitely keep your eye on the goal, or life runs away from you. 🙂
